Everything Wrong with IT: Chapter Two

What’s wrong with IT: Chapter Two? Where do I begin?

Clocking in at a grueling 2 hours and 50 minutes, IT: Chapter Two has a pretty hefty run time that had me checking my watch… Seven times, to be exact.

While the 2017 adaptation of Stephen King’s IT was a financial juggernaut at the box office, receiving rave reviews from both audiences and critics, the sequel is a different story.

Despite the excellent on-screen chemistry of Bill Hader, Jessica Chastain, and James McAvoy being flanked by Andy Muschietti’s keen eye for visuals and set-pieces, the film’s pacing is nothing short of boring. For a psychological horror film, there’s an expectation for more scares, better editing, and overall consistent thematic elements…

IT: Chapter Two failed in all categories.

  1. Spot on review. I went in knowing that it was not going to match the first which is fine, but it just became a very tiresome movie. Kind of surprised the metascore was not lower. I will say that Bill Hader was great. James McAvoy’s character was off, it almost reminded me of one of his personalities from Glass.
